I decided to give Black Desert a chance on steam given it’s so cheap . I’m enjoying it so far .

Can’t really see Ashes of Creation being bigger than Star Citizen in terms of investment from crowdfunding but it does look like it has a lot of potential and by the way thing seem to be going with Star Citizen I think there is a good chance Ashes of Creation will release first .
